I'm interested in purchasing a Schwinn 20" Unisex Folding

Customer Question

I'm interested in purchasing a Schwinn 20" Unisex Folding Bike. My weight exceeds the recommended rider weight by 60#. Would inserting a snug reinforcing pipe inside the folding joint allow me to safely ride that bike?

Hello and thank you for choosing JUSTANSWER.com

.

I think i need some type of MockUp to be sure.

And even then its NEVER going to be 100% sure that it will be safe.

.

Products go through rigorous testing before they can say WITH ANY CERTAINTY, that a product has a weight limit.

.

So unless you plan on doing stress testing, there will never be any way to know.

.

However, reinforcing all THE JOINTS, and adding in some structural bracing, should keep the additional weight at bay.

.

Although, and again.....there will NEVER be a 100% sure thing....unless you TEST it under lab conditions.
